"Baby Götterdämerung" as written by and David Wyndorf....
I read a book today, it made me think of the life I led
It seems so far away, but then I wouldn't call it dead
I see a name or two and the ghosts just starts to roll
I had 'em locked away, it seems they've cut their own parole
Now face the music son,
Some people live to remember when
But you're no storage space
You've lived a thousand lives since then
So what would Modok do, if his memory got too full
He'd find the power source
And then he'd pick what plugs to pull
I looked in the mirror, and somebody blew up
I turned on my TV, and somebody blew up
Learned how to lie well, and somebody blew up
Learned how to live true, and somebody blew up
My brain was still today, just taking a little death
Just like the doctors say, I never get that kind of rest
The movie's on again, they got me nullifying ghosts
Better dead than red, I guess I'll never get off the boat
I looked in the mirror, and somebody blew up
I turned on my TV, and somebody blew up
Learned how to lie well, and somebody blew up
Learned how to live true, and somebody blew up

    General CommentFrom what "astoria-" said, I think that when he says 'somebody blew up', he means somebody got pissed off. So he would basically be saying he can't do anything without pissing SOMEBODY off...

    General Commentyea..he mentions the creater of captain america i think on the god says no album.

    and i was thinkin how the world should have died...on the day jack kirby died

    heh
    good song, all of monster magnets songs are great..this one is good

    i think it means about how you control your own destiny, and the choices you make reflect this..even if you are not aware..

    " i learned how to lie well, and somebody blew up"
    maybe another part of yourself?

    good stuff :)

    General Comment"MI: How about `Baby Gotterdammerung'? That's a mouthful.
    D: `Gotterdammerung' means twilight of the gods, it's just like the end. It's a depressing little song about a depressing little thing in my life where at one point I went from being a huge liar, and a very good liar, into the guy who told the truth too much. You know, like, `I don't like you.' If I'm gonna be that honest, `I hate you.' You know? It's when you try to be honest and everybody dies anyway. Everybody dies, whether you're lying or not. Everyone's always got a problem with that. The only reason `Gotterdammerung' is in there is because it's such a cool fucking word."

    Very good, soulful song.
